    Arma:
    Yes, I confirm November.
    Not all the invitations have been made yet.
    Warm Regards
    A.R.

  • Arma

    Dear Andrea

    Only 10 days to November…
    Are you still solid on November as the date for your presentation? If yes, first half, second half?
    Have you already sent invitations to the expected attendees?

    My best regards

    Arma

    Dr Andrea Rossi:
    So you think to put the E-Cat QX in the place of the burner in a gas turbine?

  • Andrea Rossi

    Sven-Erik:
    We are working on that.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  • Andrea Rossi

    Alessandro Coppi:
    We are evaluating all the possibilities. Steam engines can be a good solution for naval applications.

    Italo R.:
    The Stirling Engine theoretically would be a good partner, but we still have not been able to get the offer for a real product. There has been in the nineties a fantastic test made by NASA, but there has not been realized a real follow up. I am grateful to all our readers that have sent me many links related to this issue, but I still did not have a concrete response.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  • Italo R.

    Dear Dr. Rossi, can you tell us which are the issues (in this period of your R&D) for reaching a good compatibility between QX and a Stirling motor?

    Thank you for your time to reply.

    Kind Regards,
    Italo R.

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    The Brenmiller Energy http://www.bren-energy.com is not a power generation technology, but an energy storage solution. Working together with eCat may have interesting applications.

    One example comes to mind is to store some of the heat produced by eCat to run eCat, thus closing the loop or running multiple other eCats.

    But may be I am totally off base here.

    Regards,

    Gennady

  • Alessandro Coppi

    Why do not start from the basis?
    a simple steam engine, even if with a very low efficiency could be the right first step forward the electric energy generation.
    Are available steam engines by 10 KW to 100 , on youtube it is simple find them.

  • Sven-Erik

    Dear Dr Andrea Rossi:
    Did you think about applying the Ecat QX to a gas turbine in place of the burner, or in combination with it?
    That could be a game changer in the transportation field.
    Godspeed,
    Sven-Erik

    Possible chinese source for sterling engines..

    http://www.microgen-engine.com

  • Colin Watters

    Might be too small for you but i think a number of boiler/furnace manufacturers make small commercial and even domestic combined heat and power (CHP) units. These run on gas and provide hot water for heating/bathing plus a small amount of electricity. The electricity is produced using a Sterling engine.

    Examples..
    Commercial scale
    https://www.viessmann.co.uk/en/commerce/combined-heat-and-power-generation/chp-unit.html

    Residential scale
    https://www.viessmann.co.uk/en/residential-buildings/combined-heat-and-power-generation.html

    I think Baxi also have a residential scale unit.

    I don’t have any contacts with these companies but it seems to me they would be idea partners and would be great to see one of their standard CHP boilers converted to LENR.

  • Dear Dr. Rossi:

    You once looked at the Green Turbine.
    It appears that their product has matured.
    A possible fit for the E-Cat QX?

    Good luck with product search.

    The 25kW ThermoHeart engine by Cool Energy might be a suitable design (http://coolenergy.com).

  • Tom Conover

    Dear Andrea,

    I like Qnergy … 10 units = 54000 watts electrical output … modular … up to 100kw? 500kw? I called the phone number on the web site, (801) 752-0100, and a representative answered the phone. I asked him if he was able to deliver 10 units of product for prompt deployment, and he said he was able to deliver from stock. I told him I would have you call him back.

    “Snowbasin, UT – February 3, 2017 – Snowbasin Resort is proud to partner with Qnergy on the installation of Qnergy’s first pilot installation of its Remote-Power unit, the “Smart Gen.” This independent, uninterruptible electrical-power-supply producing unit continuously produces and supplies electricity to the facility’s grid as well as provides emergency power, utilizing Snowbasin’s expanding natural gas infrastructure. The unit converts the energy in natural gas into electricity.

    The SmartGen provides two electrical outlets of 120V AC 45A power for independent continuously 24/7, 365 days a year. It also serves as a backup, off –grid power supply in case the site loses grid power during any harsh storm.

    “At a 6,000ft elevation and with weather conditions way below freezing temperatures, Snowbasin Resort is a perfect location for the pilot of our SmartGen remote-power unit. The SmartGen will be able to experience real world conditions that match the expectation of many industries that need to rely on remote-power applications,” commented Dan Nadav Qnergy’s VP Sales & Marketing. “We are thankful for the opportunity to test our unique solution and look forward to enhance our relationship with the local E&P community with more pilots in the next 6 months.”

    Could this be an ally for you to court?

    Alva:
    Not yet. Probably we have to change strategy and look for a different kind of engine to couple with the E-Cat.

    Dr Andrea Rossi,
    Did you find a seller of Stirling Engines?

    Dear Andrea,
    To round out a potential contact list, there’s also the “JTEC” device. It doesn’t sound like the “JTEC” is ready for prime-time yet, but if it were it would be an amazing match for the E-Cat. (And it’s an interesting science concept all by itself.)

    To use their words: “The JTEC is a Thermo-Electrochemical Convertor that converts heat directly into electricity.” And: “The Johnson Thermo-Electrochemical Convertor (JTEC) is an all solid-state device that operates on the Ericsson cycle.”

    The inventor is Lonnie Johnson & he seems like a sharp guy (he’s also the inventor of the “Super Soaker” which is where he got his early seed money).

    Food for future consideration perhaps…

    The link has a TED video, and other descriptive information.: http://johnsonems.com/our-technology/

    Dr Rossi,

    You Got Served, head up to Boca Raton Hotel and Club –

    Dear Andrea,

    maybe you want to try also Qnergy products.

    This is a link to their website:
    https://www.qnergy.com/oem/

    They are based in US and their products are fuel source agnostic.

    Good Luck,

    Have you tried this link to SAAB Stirling Engines?

    Hi Andrea,

    With regards to Stirling engines, I think Ripasso Energy has licensed the technology of Kockums (https://ripassoenergy.com/).

    As far as I remember, their application is solar energy in e.g. Sahara, with big parabolas concentrating the light towards the engines.

  • Arvid

    Stirling engines by Ripasso Energy under Kockums license https://ripassoenergy.com/en/products/

  • BH

    Dear Andrea,

    I think Ripasso Energy would be a good Stirling engine provider.
    The last decade they have refined and adapted the Kockums engine to suit electricity production.
    The solar to power efficiency of their units is 32%. They also have a product that combines solar power with an alternative heat source for power production 24/7.

    Their factory is located in southern Sweden so there might be some synergies with your future production plans.

    Keep up the good work!

    Koen Vandewalle:
    Within one year I want to see an engine operated by the E-Cat QX.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  • Koen Vandewalle

    Perhaps they only possess intellectual property on a good stirling, and wait for a person who owns intellectual property on an energy source to drink coffee together. Best that we do not have to pay a license to Jesus Christ to give someone forgiveness.

    Ownership is the cement of the current tower of babel. Currently, the biggest stones are at the top, so everything starts to collapse.

    We must serve, not win.

    Having said that, a thermal engine that works optimally with the Ecat QX needs to be designed. Something with needles with heated diamonds pushed into a supercritical CO2 chamber. Varied with ice-cold diamonds.

    As long as there is no Ecat Qx on the market, it does not make sense to develop such a motor.
